The interrogation on critical ethics concerns those questions that emerge around the human behavior. The issues are discussed taking into account the historical context, but with prevailing theoretical commitment. Knowledge and various skills (historical, political, legal, theological) are part of this discipline as proper setting for further interdisciplinary developments.
By the end of the course the students should have developed autonomy of reflection and critical judgment in order to elaborate reflections on ethics topics, philosophical language skills, and understanding of the texts, but also to be able to applicate the concept so developed to the problems of the contemporaneity.
